Limited z-travel

Post by killejano »

My felix 1.5 has limited z travel of only 183mm because the plastic part hits the coupling and z-spindle nut. Why is this and has anyone else had this problem?

To my knowledge this is a limitation in the design. I wrote to Guillaume about this a long time ago (1.0 version), but most likely he forgot about it when he did the update :)

I make models with SolidWorks, save as STL and splice with SFACT
